Lord, how I laughed! . . . And then when we came away it was such fun! . . . And
then we were so merry all the way home! We talked and laughed so loud" (221-
22). Energy in young women may be refreshing, as in Catherine Morland's noisy

ridiculous” (Austen 1966: 7) and her “quickness of observation” (9); to her being “
blind, partial, prejudiced, absurd” after reading Darcy's letter (143); to her feeling “
humbled” and “grieved” at the thought of losing Darcy's good opinion because of
Lydia's actions (213). The traiting of Lydia, on the other hand, remains consistent.
Even after her marriage, “Lydia was Lydia still; untamed, unabashed, wild, noisy,
